I agree, can't judge this show - special in it's own way.
I was at the show and also felt / knew something was a miss. The energy was really weird this night.
Chi-town = Steve V, Brent, and Jerry = last shows!!?

I think that debating the quality of this show is irrelevent to the fact that it was Jerry's swan song. That alone should make it special, especially for those of us who found ourselves present at the show. It was a weird night. I think everyone there felt there was something very wrong that night. It was a very sad show.

if you want to hear the Grateful Dead at their best ya gotta listen to 1966 through 1980 (1982 at the very latest). Any new listeners reading this post take my advice. You won't be disappointed. Nobody likes to hear that the years they saw the Dead in-person sucked but the reality is post-1982 Grateful Dead is nowheres near pre-1982.

to the Tour from Hell. Nobody knew it would be the last for ole Jer' but everyone around him knew his health was terrible. Maybe if he'd stayed at the Betty Ford clinic, they'd have given him meds that would have kept him alive. Maybe it wasn't worth it if he couldn't live the way he wanted.

There's nothing special in the warm-up first set, and the Shakedown is just garbage; lots of forgotten or inaudible vocals and nothing but nasty, ugly, repetitive rhythm guitar in the jam (without any lead). But things get better starting with So Many Roads, sung with great passion and angst, and Jerry comes to life on guitar as well. Samba is it's usual self, with some jazzy MIDI-sax from Jerry thrown in. Corrina develops into a nice jam, with some good, although spotty, work from Jerry, especially in the transition to the Drums. The Drum/Space segment is, as often, the highlight of the set. Jerry seems to be steering them towards the Wheel, but instead, he plays reasonably well on his last Unbroken Chain and Sugar Magnolia. Then come the poignant encores.

Subject: Thanks for the memories...
Listening to this is always bittersweet. I sat 7th row center for this show (5 rows up from the previous night) and still have vivid memories of
this show. A little uneven, but So Many Roads and Black Muddy River still cause that lump in my throat to reappear. Thanks for posting this, it's
going to hold a special place in my collection.

This is one of there finest work's you can hear the pain and anguish in Jerry voice, losing control slowly but it doesn't take him down. He plays as a god himself. This is definitely my favorite show. R.I.P and god bless Garcia our old friend...
